paradigm a much more conducive environment i think ultimately stand to lose a great deal as we go forward. so as i consider the achievements and this transformational moment, the one thing i would say is that there are a couple of characteristics of the american health sector that are going to remain somewhat unique to america. the first i would argue is that unlike every other industrialized country, united states has never really had what i would call a system. we refer to it as a health care system, but if you define a system is having a central administrator and a central decision-making authority, we've never had that. what we have is a collage of subsystems, both public and private here the medicare and medicaid systems, subsystems being some of the more significant public. our whole private health insurance, one of the more private systems but we also have entitlement care and the veterans administration. and uncompensated care that we all pay for in very inefficient ways, in the emergency room and in other ways as people are unable to pay for the own health care. so all of those s

will be very good. i think the regulatory environment will pressure people to have one on one relationships with clients undisturbed by the oversight that's meant for balance sheets and i'm not saying it's bad. >> i'm not following you. >> think a lot of oversight in place is to stop massive errors, balance sheet errors. if you have a trillion dollars of derivatives, multiple sites of oversight is important. i think it's in direct contradiction. the most important thing is multikl points of information, transparency where everyone knows when's going on. this is the exact opposite. we sometimes working on a transaction right now where i would say five or six people in the firm know about it. that's the way we like it. secrets are often betrayed solely because of the number of people involved. not because anybody has a bad, you know, a bad idea in their head. it's just the number of people. >> interesting. you know, you mentioned slow, steady progression in m&a but the slow is one to emphasize. this is not a good year by many standards for merger and acquisition activity. >>s no at boom year
